What’s at the heart of any movement for justice? What can ground us in our desire to see a transformed world? Drawing on the wisdom of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Adrienne Maree Brown, and artist Leslie Barlow, we’ll explore these questions as we dig into our worship theme of “Loving.”

Join us for worship on Sunday, Jan. 14 at 9:30 or 11:15 a.m.

January Worship Theme: Loving
This month, we are inspired by the work of Leslie Barlow, a young artist who has taken the art scene in the Twin Cities by storm. In her series of paintings called Loving, Ms. Barlow uses the Supreme Court ruling of 1967 against anti-miscegenation (or anti interracial marriage) laws, as the launching pad for her study of family, challenging perceived family normalcy and the lack of representation of diverse family dynamics. Her series invites us into the extraordinary of ordinary love in all different kinds and variety of families. This month we explore Loving. The people we love. The variety of families from which we were born, and the big-hearted call to Love found in the very DNA of our family of faith.
